The Meriden

We’re working to improve and regenerate the Meriden estate with a development programme which will enhance the area for residents and communities. The project represents a £36 million investment, £4.4 million of which was funded directly from government grants.

In the initial stages of the project, we met with key stakeholders such as the residents of bungalows, the Friends of Meriden, the Meriden Residents' Association and ward councillors to provide an overview of the delivery of the scheme.

We’ll be developing 133 newly built or refurbished homes, an expanded community hub, a brand new parade of shops and new green spaces.

Split into two phases, the works will cover the central area of the Meriden. Phase one, estimated to conclude in spring 2020, will see the development of the retail block and the first of the new residences, including bungalows and houses. Phase two focuses on the extra care facility, including a large hairdressing salon which will serve the whole community.

Phase one is progressing well, with the first 3 bungalows expected to be completed in June 2019.
